Hal Kneen and I are on the road to Buffalo, NY, our first stop on a ‘fact finding mission’ to see how local communities are supporting fruit and vegetable farmers (and other small farms who are direct marketing their products).

So, how are local communities supporting the retention and sustainability of farmers? Are they visting farms to pick their own? Are the buying at farmers’ markets? What are they buying? Are they helping manage farmers’ markets?

We also aim to provide details on marketing, pricing, products and more through our blog the next few days! We look forward to sharing with you. If you post a question – please let us know and we’ll try to get you an answer!
